A $5,000 bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly threatened to kill his girlfriend.
Prosecutors had probable cause to charge Quintez Richardson, 19, with terroristic threatening, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled Wednesday and set the bond.
Police were sent May 22 to the 200 block of South Blake Street where the alleged female victim said Richardson made several threats to kill her on Facebook, according to a probable cause affidavit from police Detective Chris Wieland that was presented in court Wednesday.
The alleged victim’s mother said Richardson showed up at her house, pounded on the door, and when she opened the door, started yelling and making threats.
Wieland said in the affidavit that Richardson allegedly got back into his vehicle, leaned out the window and waved a handgun around before leaving.
When Richardson was arrested, he allegedly said he had made the threats on Facebook and gone to the alleged victim’s mother’s house but denied making threats or waving a gun around.
In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Richardson to have no contact with the alleged victim or her mother until the case is settled.
Richardson said he would hire his own attorney.
